Breastesses

I haven’t talked about my boob in a while. The wound’s still there, although barely. It started out being something like 4 cm wide and 2 cm deep. Now there is no depth and it’s about .5 cm square. My wound care lady sang “You’ll be healed for Christmas” to me last week, which I take as a good sign. Occasionally it still pains me considerably, but it’s mostly tolerable.

If you can avoid it, I highly recommend not having a gaping wound for 3 months.

    You poor thing! Thanks for the update. It’s always a little awkward when asking someone you’ve never actually met, “Hey! how’s your boob doing?”

    Which reminds me of a story…

    A friend’s brother-in-law had the old snip job but somehow something went wrong and “it” got all swollen and really painful. He had a doctor’s appt and then went to meet his family at Papa Gino’s, an “inexpensive” (to be polite) pizza place in the New England area that masquerades as an Italian family friendly restaurant. (That sounds harsh I know but truth be told, I LOVE their pizza and miss it dearly.) The guy walks in the restaurant and his 9 year old son screams across the restaurant, “Hey Dad! How’s your penis?” He pretended to not know them LOL!

    Can a social life have a gaping wound? If so, I’ve had one since 1999…

    That sounded like a pretty awful thing to go through. I’m so glad to know you’re healing!
